    Your DON'T BUY products

    This thread is for products that you've bought and that have massively failed you.

    Don't post here because you fell out with the vendor or because you're a rock-ape and broke the do-hickey off before you even got started. This is for products that no tosser ought to buy.

    Machine Mart garage floor tiles

    Nice and soft and easy to lay. Lovely to kneel on whilst you're working on your bike.

    But after a year, some of the tiles have grown in size due to traffic squashing them out. Now the whole floor is rucked up and I'm constantly trying to avoid tripping over. They are soon to be consigned to the dump!

    FWIW, Costco sell an identical tile for half the money. I'd avoid those too!

    I'm just about to chuck these out (as soon as my order for www.racedeck.com tiles is delivered)

    Pet Seal - fuel tank sealant.
    Reacts with ethanol, dissolves and coats your carb slides with just enough crap to hold them open - usually just as you really, really want to lose speed, not maintain it.
    Arghhhh!

    Just about anything from Held.
    I bought a "tex" jacket and a pair of thin soft leather summer gloves many years ago.
    After a few days one glove ripped apart just by me pulling it onto my hand. The leather actually broke, not the stitching.

    The jacket was never waterproof. Before trashing it a few years later I checked under the lining. All the seam tape had fallen off and was lying around in the bottom of the lining!

    A vile company , arrogant and incompetent.
    Gives a waterfall inside the visor , water actually splashes into your eyes. Fucking dangerous!
    This fault was well reported in BIKE magazine just a few weeks after I made my purchase
    The integrated comms (SRC) are totally incompatible with the rest of the motorcycle industry (SENA etc)
    The neck roll is secured by two weak pins that will break off
    The 5 year warranty ... my god, they just keep expecting you to send it back for the faults to re-occur .
    Finally the integrated sun visor frequently jams , not up or down , but in a half-way , very exasperating position.
    A total piece of crap , all these faults could be excused if it cost £150 , but at £650 they really take the biscuit.

    Muc-off. Seriously nasty stuff if you expose your hands to it too often.

    Best helmet I've ever had...Recently rode back from Scotland ....483mls in 11hrs of persistent rain. No steaming up no rain on the inside of the visor. Owned over 2 years, never a problem.

    I have two C3pros. I bought the second one because the first one was so good. Never had any issues with water ingress and I've ridden in some downpours. Both bought at the show at the NEC for £320 ish complete with fitted and spare anti-fog double glazing thingy.
